I made this oil blend specifically based on electrical frequency, because our body is made up of energy, and we have different frequencies.

Why did I create this formula? The essential oils in Valor were used by the Roman soldiers before battle to promote courage during a time of physical and emotional challenges. All of us go through physical and emotional challenges. I made this blend in 1990 because at that time I was having a confrontation with the IRS, and I had to go to Seattle for the hearing. I was representing myself in court because I couldn’t afford an attorney. I was really scared. I’d never been in a court with the IRS before; this was a first experience.

I made Valor the night before, poured it in the tub, and then bathed in it. At that time I was living in Spokane where I had a little farm I was starting. I drove to Seattle, stayed in a motel, got up, went into the hearing that morning and presented my case. They made me feel like I was less than dirt. But I stood my ground and argued my points, and then I left. Two weeks later I got a certified letter in the mail announcing to me: Mr. Young, we’ve heard your case, we’ve reviewed it, we have accepted your presentation, and we have dropped our issues against you. So I won on all 42 counts. That was a big accomplishment for me. So, Valor became very, very dear to me and has been a very powerful oil blend ever since.

Joy has a magnetic energy that brings feelings of rejoicing to the heart, mind, and soul and inspires romance. It is a blend of 10 very uplifting oils.

Everyday Oils: PanAway and Peace & Calming

PanAway. This oil blend with Wintergreen, Helichrysum, Clove, and Peppermint is very powerful. Use PanAway for overworked or tired muscles.

Peace & Calming. I made this blend for the children and discovered something—actually, I made it for the parents to reduce their stress. But if you diffuse this in the home, it really calms down the children. How many of you have grandchildren? Then every one of you will want a case of this in your home and a diffuser in every other room, because it’s really important. What I would do is just massage it on the children’s feet. Just for general relaxing, it’s great. Massage for relieving stress in grandparents.

It’s also great for animals. If you have a dog that’s hyper, just rub it right over his muzzle and massage his ears, whether it’s a dog or a cat or a horse or any animal. I use it on my horses because I have a few of them, and I massage it right around the auricular points in the ears, and they’ll just stand there and almost go to sleep on me. And if I’ve got a horse that’s a little bit high spirited that I’m going to shoe and know he’s going to fidget a little bit, I just massage his ears with Peace & Calming; and he just stands there and lets me put the shoes on him.

Peace & Calming is a blend of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. Wonderful oils.

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii). This holy anointing oil has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It was well known during the time of Christ for its healing and anointing powers and was used to treat every conceivable illness known. It increases spiritual awareness, uplifts spirits, improves attitudes, and promotes meditation.

Thieves. This blend contains Cinnamon, Clove, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalyptus Radiata. Diffusing it in your home is very powerful. Diffuse it daily to eliminate unwanted odors. Take it as a supplement to support the immune system. Add it to the dishwasher for cleaner dishes. Add it to mop water for cleaner floors. We do make a large container of Thieves Household Cleaner for that purpose. Don’t leave home without Thieves or Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier.

Purification. This blend contains Citronella; Rosemary; Lemongrass, which we distill at our farm in Ecuador; Lavandin, which we distill at our farm in France; Melaleuca Alternifolia; and Myrtle.

Purification is magical for soothing the skin, so use it in a spray bottle to clear skin of blemishes. It’s just amazing.

It also cleanses the air and neutralizes disagreeable odors.

Lemon. Over 50 studies reveal benefits of d-limonene and our Lemon essential oil has those fabulous antioxidant properties of d-limonene, which protect the body. Guess what’s in Blue Spruce and Balsam Fir oils? Yes, limonene. Studies suggest lemon oil is very effective at supporting the liver and circulatory system.

Add 2 to 3 drops of Lemon oil in a glass of water and mix it. Mary and I cook with the oils; they’re our flavoring agents. Diffuse it to uplift emotions. It’s an important ingredient in NingXia Red.

Peppermint. How many of you like peppermint tea? Why? Because it’s soothing to the stomach, the gastrointestinal tract. Try putting 1 drop of Peppermint oil in a cup of warm water, and just stir it and sip on it; you’ll be amazed at what it’ll do, not only for your digestive system but also for your circulatory system.

The mental clarity you get from drinking peppermint water is amazing. The University of Cincinnati found that inhaling peppermint oil increased mental accuracy by 28 percent. Does that have value?

Studies have proved the antioxidant activities of peppermint oil. They show that peppermint oil curbs appetite when inhaled. Add it to herbal tea to support digestion. Use it before and during workouts to invigorate your muscles and reduce fatigue. Place 2 drops on the tongue to improve alertness and focus. Mix it in a foot bath to relieve sore feet.
